[IP] Softset vs. Bent Needle

My daughter and I started pumping saline last Thursday and are using the 
Softset.  We both love it. (I'm doing it to keep her company)  The trainer 
from Minimed said that our doctor may insist on my daughter using the bent 
needle and showed it to her.  She was hysterical.  She will be going into 
the hospital for 3 days when she goes "live".  I feel I should insist on 
using the Softset, otherwise this is going to be a bad experience and I 
don't think my daughter can handle it (I couldn't!! The idea of having a 
needle in me 24/7 would make me very anxious). She is doing so well with the 
Softset I don't want to ruin this for her.  Any advice? Pros of bent needle 
over Softset?  Thanks.
